We Are the World - Wednesday

I'm a little off-schedule thanks to a run in with the stomach flu.  UGH.  So, we'll skip Trash Talk this week and jump right to We are the World...

This week I have to tout the WONDERFUL Ronald McDonald House.  I am selling T-shirts for the RMH's "Sport a Shirt, Share a Night" program.  T-shirts cost $10, and RMH uses 100% of those proceeds to give a night of housing the family members of a critically ill child.  See, RMH's are located near the biggest children's hospitals in their respective areas.  Families that are forced to come in from out of town so their children can receive desperately needed, specialized care are offered a nice, warm, comfortable place to stay, and are given meals and the opportunity to lean on other parents in similar situations.  The RMH is a lifesaver for a lot of families that couldn't otherwise afford to stay near their children.  I love this cause, and have participated in "Sport a Shirt" for the last 5 years.

Motivating very busy tax accountants to participate in anything outside of prepping a tax return is extremely difficult.  ESPECIALLY during tax season.  For that reason, I'm asking you - loyal readers (and not-so-loyal readers, if you've happened upon this blog accidentally) - to support this fantastic cause.  You can either buy a shirt through me, or find someone in your area that is helping the RMH.  Don't want to buy a shirt?  That's okay, too.  The RMH can use your money, your time, your cooking skills... There's a lot of ways to help.  Check out the main website at: http://rmhc.org/

If you want to buy a t-shirt from me, please leave a comment below, and we'll work out the details.  If not, that's cool.  Just do something for a House near you.
